Telltale's consumer based "Hint's and Tips"

posted by Anonymous on - last edited - Viewed by 1.4K users

Since Telltale is cool, and LucAssfarts isnt, I feel there is a heck of a chance you could see a game made that you actually want! Personally, I'm tired of swinging the ol' digital lightsaber around. You know what I mean?

Come to think of it, what do YOU want to see from Telltale?

Personally, Ren and Stimpy are two excellent characters for an adventure. I think. No? Eh.

    Adventure games need to be funny, and witty- both at once. With just the right amount of action (not too much- we don't want to forget what genre we're playing in), heh.

    Sounds easy, eh?! ;)

    You're not being entirely fair to LucasArts. Sure they cancelled two games which could have re-established adventure games in the mainstream (Admittedly, one of them wasn't looking particularly good, but still...) and for that they should all burn in the fire of a thousand suns.

    But they have released a few games over the last few years which were good, some very good, technically they were all Star Wars, but in many ways, it is a very flexible license, with a rich universe to it and a lovingly chronicled history. (Before anyone says it, no, I'm not a Star Wars geek, I've only seen the original films once, not even in the right order, and I quite liked the new ones) KoToR has already been mentioned, Jedi Academy I enjoyed, Battlefront is a good, if flawed game that tries to capture the essence that made Battlefield so enjoyable. Galaxies was a good first attempt into an MMORPG, again flawed, but still enjoyable, and a lot better now than it was.

    Anyway, a little off topic there, sorry about that.

    A discworld game would be excellent, anyone remember Noir? Good game, even if I had to turn the gamma right up to see anything.

    You mean the 4th discworld game, or possibly fifth if you include non-graphic games.

    The 1st was a text adventure, the second was Discworld 1 (Rincewind and the dragon). the third was Discworld 2: Missing Presumed (Rincewind, death goes missing. stars in a holy-wood clicky). and the fourth and newest is Discworld Noir (New character, Lewton, Detective. Dark humour. Written by pratchett. Set in ankh-morpork. Another thing from the dungeon dimensions breaks into the city because of a mysterious brotherhood (Who are even more secret then usual).
    So another discworld game would be the fifth (or fourth graphical).

    I think the publishing company that were distrubuting Discworld Noir went bust before the game reached America though, so not everyone will have heard of it. Although it seems a budget publisher has released it, as I saw it in the shops on budget label about a month ago.
    And yes, I am a big discworld fan, having all the books, several signed, and about 1/4 first editions.

    EDIT:
    I just thought, A doctor who game would be excellent, and with the new series coming out next year (after a 15 year break), it would be the prefect time to develop a game! The Doctor is the perfect character for appearing in an adventure game, as he relies more on intelligence then brute force. He also has human companions (The Doctor is a Time-Lord from the planet of gallifrey) that could be used in a similar way to ratpouch from lure of the temptress. The Doctor can also travel through time and space in the TARDIS (Time and relative dimensions in space). He faces numerous enemies, the most famous of which are the Daleks and Cybermen. He also regenerates into a new form when he sustains heavy injury, currently he is on his 9th incarnation (played by christopher eccleston). Although I think the best for an adventure game would be Tom Baker (4th Doctor). (And yes, I am also a big doctor who fan, going so far as to build a life-size replica dalek!)

    I'm hoping that The Blades of Stenchtar is going to be a real game. That blog made me laugh so much. An adventure game making fun of traditional RPGs would be great.

    Funny. 'Dr Who' was one of the possible games I mentioned in one of the early telltale blog comments . :D

    Still, it probably has limited appeal to the americans, so mightn't be the best marketing move.

    I would love to see a game based on the second Dirk Gently book. It simply reads like an adventure game. If I wern't so lazy, I'd get on AGS and make one myself.

    it may have limited appeal now, but when the new series is released in America... When it was still being made, the Americans liked it as much as anybody, even going so far as to make two films! (Only copies of the first two dalek serials, but...)
